    Technorati and Blog Reactions !

    28December,2007 15 comments

    I borrowed this idea from Jos over at NoDirectOn (not: NoDirection)

    I copied and pasted this from Jos's blog...

    In the scroll box below are the blogs that were kind enough to link to this blog in the last 10 days. That is... the ones that Technorati counted...

    I have copy/pasted the Technorati pages with "blog reactions", changed the rel="bookmark" to rel="dofollow", deleted the images, and.. hey presto!

    Hope this works to give you some LinkLOve back (If it works, it will give a lot of LinkLOve to Technorati, too ;).



    Thank you for linking to laketrees !

    It's an Award - and it's a Sign!

    20December,2007 5 comments


    Jos at NoDirectOn (not: NoDirection)
    has created this award badge as a clear signal to the visitors of those blogs that carry it.






    Jos had this to say about his award:

    It is intended to be a sign that says: "this blog is cool & crazy, and the blog owner is not afraid to admit it".
    It is for those bloggers that I think are really Cool -- and I suspect they are a little Crazy too.
    They are running their blogs to be a true reflection of their own personality and they stick to it. They are providing an atmosphere that makes their visitors feel welcome as members of their blogs' community. They manage to use the right tone of voice, write about an inspiring choice of subjects and treat their visitors and their fellow bloggers as friends. And they all do that without taking themselves or their blogs too serious, in spite of all the time and the crazy hard work they put into it.

    Thank you very much Jos !!

    I am passing this award on to .....
    Lyn at IT'S A WOMAN'S WORLD for being such a terrific interviewer and for having the qualities that Jos has mentioned in his award

    Entry # 2

    Firstly, many thanks to Santa for inviting me to co-author Santa's Community Blog and welcome to Auntie Dar, Eric, Janice, Judy, Martje, Sandee and Surjit as new co-authors too.Wow, is Blog Elf in for a surprise, especially as he likes to call me eeeeeeek the ghost!! Mind you, he's probably far to busy eating his Frog Sandwiches.
    Isn't Christmas a wonderful time of year? Yes, there's a great deal of hustle and bustle, shopping to be done, work to be finished, gifts to wrap, cards to write and much more.
    The Magi followed the Star of Bethlehem, bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh as gifts for the Christ, born the King of the Jews. Now, traditionally, it is an annual holiday when we celebrate the birth of Jesus with traditions that vary around the world, but the sentiments are the same, we promote goodwill, compassion and peace for all mankind.We celebrate with Midnight Mass, singing the praises of the Lord on this magical day. Children act out the Nativity at schools, churches and halls, while waiting (sometimes impatiently) for the arrival of the jolly man in red known as Santa Claus in the early hours of Christmas morning, when all good children should be asleep.I have many memories of Christmas Past, it is a mesmerizing time of year.



    Many years ago, my father took a picture of me ( above) pinching a chocolate off the Christmas Tree, caught in the act as it were!! Mind you, that was many years ago, I have aged a little since then.










    In more recent years, I have my own daughter who was fortunate to meet Santa on many occasions. Here she is 3 years old and sat on Santa's knee. Now she is 14 years old, and still anticipates Christmas and has been counting down the days since the end of July hahahaha.







    Now then, do not forget to write your letters to Santa, as he's a very busy man and his elves will be working overtime to satisfy the child in all of us.If you are passing by, please join this wonderful community and add it to your Technorati Favourites.......clickety clickety click as Blog Elf would say.Have a wonderful week everyone, and spare a thought for those less fortunate than ourselves.Colin

    Entry # 3
    Ok, here it goes I haven't had that many memorable Christmas's as I was not raised with my family. I remember living in a foster home and all the prezzies that my mom would send to me were taken away! Sad but true. The holidays are such a hard time for me even tho I am an adult now so I just try not to think about it! One year I bought myself off Ebay The Beatles Christmas cut-out records. Music has always helped me thru all the horrible times that I lived thru.. The Beatles and their music is so magical and happy I always wished I was part of the Beatle family! So I say the Beatles are the farway family that I never had. I do get choked up just writing this letter. I still believe in miracles & the spirit of Christmas and when I am sad or thinking of the less fortunate, I play some Beatles music and it magically goes away. Not everyone has had a family and I envy the people that have one and take them for granted! Remember to love one another because someone in your family can leave you in a instant.

    Entry # 7




    Back in 2003 I was in my first year at Punmu, on Lake Dora in the Great
    Sandy Desert.

    Somehow I was talked into being Santa. Then I was talked into arriving
    on a pushbike!

    Across the dry salt lake (well, a part of it, it is several hundred
    square km in extent) at about 5.30pm with the temperature hovering above
    40C!

    The children were still highly appreciative and even a molten Santa had
    fun.
